The Welsh National. Top Class long distance steeplechase

This is a top class race for long distance chasers at this time of year. Often this race throws up a chaser to keep in the note book for the following years.

The Welsh National often has good class runners but the key to the race is a liking for soft ground as inevitable at this time of year Chepstow Racecourse turns out to be very soft or heavy ground.

This important race is run at Chepstow racecourse's December meeting.
